Dead For A Dollar : Cool Name, Mediocre Movie
14 November 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Handsome George Hilton, slippery John Ireland, and a fat blustery Portuguese each try to outmaneuver the others in order to make off with the two-hundred-thousand dollars in stolen money taken from them by the deceased Gordon Mitchell.

Sometimes this spaghetti western is amusing but mostly it's pretty talky stuff. Ireland and Hilton are game but this tries to be another The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly without any real visual excitement or fun twists in the story. These two have definitely done better.

The worst part of the film (and I mean worst!) occurs near the end, a disgusting dinner scene between George Hilton and the dressmaker (Why wasn't she shot before this?) as they smack their dripping greasy chicken, the camera lingering on closeups of them chewing the stringy chicken with oily open mouths and food hanging out!

At over a hundred minutes the movie wasn't too long already that they had to include this?! It was pointless, irritating, and gross! Obviously they struck a raw nerve, at least with this viewer!
